We report the discovery and follow-up timing observations of two young energetic radio pulsars. PSR J1420-6048 has a period P = 68 ms and period derivative = 83 × 10-15, implying a characteristic age τc = 13 kyr and a surface dipole magnetic field strength B = 2.4 × 1012 G. PSR J1837-0604 has P = 96 ms and = 45 × 10-15, implying τc = 34 kyr and B = 2.1 × 1012 G. The two objects have large spin-down luminosities, and, on the basis of an empirical comparison of their properties with those of…

PSR J2021+3651: A young radio pulsar coincident with an unidentified egret γ-ray source
We report on a deep search for radio pulsations toward five unidentified ASCA X-ray sources coincident with EGRET γ-ray sources. This search has led to the discovery of a young and energetic pulsar
Recently Discovered Pulsars and Unidentified Egret Sources
We present a correlative study between all unidentified EGRET sources at low Galactic latitudes and the newly discovered pulsars in the released portion of the Parkes multibeam radio survey. We note
Multiwavelength studies of psr j1420-6048, a young pulsar in the kookaburra
We present X-ray, radio, and infrared observations of the 68 ms pulsar PSR J1420-6048 and its surrounding nebula, a possible counterpart of the γ-ray source GeV J1417-6100/3EG J1420-6038. Pulsed
30 glitches in 18 radio pulsars
Pulsar timing is a classic technology of detecting irregularities in pulsar rotation. We carried out this method for 18 young radio pulsars, with long-term timing observations obtained between 2007

We report on deep BVR-imaging of the field of the nearby millisecond pulsar PSR J0030+0451 obtained with the ESO/VLT/FORS2. We do not detect any optical counterpart down to B > 27.3, V > 27. 0a ndR >
PSR J 2021 + 3651 : a new cray pulsar candidate
The COS B high energy c-ray source 2CG 075+00, also known as GeV J2020+3658 or 3EG J2021+3716, has avoided identification with a low energy counterpart for over 20 years. We present a likely


The Parkes Multibeam Pulsar Survey: PSR J1811-1736, a Pulsar in a Highly Eccentric Binary System
We are undertaking a high-frequency survey of the Galactic plane for radio pulsars, using the 13-element multibeam receiver on the 64-m Parkes radio telescope. We describe briefly the survey system
Limits on radio emission from pulsar wind nebulae
It is argued that the young and energetic pulsars in the authors' sample have winds which are typical of young pulsars, but produce unobservable PWN because they reside in low-density regions of the interstellar medium, implying an efficiency at least an order of magnitude smaller than that seen for young pulsARS.
ASCA Observations of the Unidentified EGRET Source 2EGS J1418–6049
In a 40 ks ASCA exposure of the GeV EGRET error box of the unidentified source 2EGS J1418-6049, we observe diffuse emission surrounding several unusual hard spectrum X-ray sources. Two of these

Gamma Radiation from PSR B1055–52

Glitches in Southern Pulsars
Analysis of glitch parameters shows that most glitches have a fractional amplitude Delta nu(g)/nu of between 10(-8) and 10(-6), and there is no consistent relationship between glitch amplitude and the time since the previous glitch or the time to the following glitch, either for the ensemble or for individual pulsars.
